A problem with the tire pressure monitoring system sensors has been reported to the FCA US LLC Technical Safety and Regulatory Compliance Group. The problem affects certain models of the Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300. As the report attached below shows, the problem is that the battery is discharging too quickly.
2022 Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, and Dodge Charger Tpms Sensors Will Be Fixed
On June 21, members of FCA’s US TSRC had met with engineers and suppliers to better understand the failure mode and identify the group of suspects. The next day, the former Chrysler Corporation discovered that a problem occurred in the production of Model 2022 vehicles. It is possible that because of this problem, they did not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 138.
It was necessary to conduct a voluntary recall, which was expanded to a total of 52 340 vehicles. It is believed that 5 percent of these vehicles have a premature battery discharge. Brampton Assembly is responsible for the recall of 19,345 Challenger vehicles produced by Chrysler between August 23, 2021 and June 10, 2022. These vehicles were assembled there.
Between August 23 last year and June 7 this year, a total of 27,337 units of the more popular Charger were produced. Between September 7, 2021, and June 9 of this year, a total of 5,658 units of the unpopular 300 were produced.
According to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 138, “every vehicle must be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system.” This technology can detect “when the tire pressure of one or more of a vehicle’s tires is significantly too low and illuminate a low tire pressure warning signal.” Premature deflation is what causes the TPMS light to illuminate, which can hide an underinflated tire that can lead to bad luck. Huf Baolong Electronics NA Corp. is responsible for the production of these sensors.
FCA US LLC has informed us that the repair sensors will not be discharged prematurely. Both dealers and owners will be notified on September 9. The vehicle manufacturer states that customers who have already paid to have the problem fixed are entitled to a refund, provided they keep the receipt of the work performed.
